A publisher has launched a poetry competition in which a winner is declared every fortnight. Eyewear’s Fortnight New Poem prize “is meant to celebrate poetry in a fast-paced digital world, where too often prizes are entered with interminable waiting times between submission and result”.

Eyewear’s director Todd Swift, pictured, who will be judging the poems, said that any original, English-language poem written by the author will be eligible, “even one that has appeared in print before (online or on paper, for instance)”. Poems can be submitted for seven days, and then a shortlist of the 14 best poems will be announced on the Eyewear website. The prize is £140, and poets may submit up to seven poems for a £7 fee.
